This is not my first visit to Stone town as i used to leave in Zanzibar.During this holiday trip, the House of Spice was recommended to me by a friend .I must confess that i was pleasantly surprised.
First of all and worth to mention as this is rare enough in Zanzibar, I finally get the opportunity to enjoy a cold iced spice tea upon arrival and then at the bar where a wide range of home made spice tea and coffee are available.
The house is tastefully decorated.The emphasis given to details and overall cleanness equal any of the well known 5 stars Boutique hotel in Stone Town.The price being very reasonable, the House of Spice is definitively a TOP value for money.
We benefited from a nice room, a nice meal and enjoyed to chill at the bar( I will add some bigger sofa tough).
The staff and owner are very pleasant and efficient.We had a water issue which was sorted within a minute by the manager.During meal time, the waiter arranged a table for us in the bar instead of the restaurant.They were attentive but not obstructive which is a must in Zanzibar.
Looking for an intimate place in the heart of Stone town with nice service and reasonable prices , do not hesitate to try the House of spice.
